Indicators to let you know if your coordinates will be going down or up (depending on which direction you are facing)
Command to copy current coords and paste into chat (I did find this on Batty's Coordinates Mod but am having trouble running it)
The previous three I have found in the Batty's Coordinates Mod.
Entity counter (THIS IS ESSENTIAL)
I have only found this on the InGame Info XML mod but would be willing to find another if a different mod displays entities easier.
That's really all I think I need. Some optional things that could be helpful but not super important:
Durability left on things
So I have been trying to find and experiment and download some mods in the past few days to accomplish these things I want in a mod. I have downloaded MagicInstaller as well as Forge. Currently Forge seems to be running the two mods I would need to have all the things I want in a HUD/mod.
I am having extreme trouble figuring out how to edit the XML file to have the InGame info mod display what I would like it to (mostly just interested in displaying the entities from this mod). I don't have any experience editing this type of file and I don't want to mess anything up. Help on the editing of this would be greatly appreciated. So if there is a different mod that has all the things I want that would be lovely. Wow I am having trouble but I would love any help I can get. If you know anything about any of these mods or installers, anything you have to add would be lovely. Thanks for helping me out!
PM me if you like or just add to the thread. I'm desperate!
Thank you so much. Both the mods now work on Forge. I just need help finding something to display entities now. Thanks!
To display entities, you can use either Damage Indicators, or WAILA, which and NEI Addon. Waila has a really short viewing distance, and it doesn't only apply to entities, but to blocks as well. Damage Indicators seems like something that might suit your needs a bit more, but the mod hasn't been updated in a while, and has probably been abandoned by the author. I'm not sure if it has a 1.8.9 release, but its worth a look.
